Silly Curls Classes at Sterlin Beauty Salon


Silly Curls offers fun and interactive classes where young girls and their mothers learn how to style their hair for any and every occasion. Each child is provided with a mannequin that serves as her “client” for the day, and accessories like glitter, hair chalk, and any other products needed to create the day’s style are also included.

Silly Curls teaches your child the most essential skills for creating great hairstyles all on their own. Students put their new skills into practice during the event so that afterwards they can recreate hairstyles at home. Events are taught by a team of enthusiastic and kid-friendly hairstylists who train the girls and reveal all the insider tricks-of-the-trade and professional techniques. Refreshments are provided. 

Please visit the website for upcoming events, and follow Silly Curls on Facebook and Instagram.
